Navigon NCK5 hands down. It's also very customizable and suits carpc well.
All the big maps-included SW options are fine when you're in the USA.
If you are in Africa (like me) or in China (I'll be next year) and you need to scan a paper map or use GoogleEarthPro images and then calibrate them, OZI is a great tool.
Last year I scanned a good paper map of Sicily, and we drove thru mountain roads and small villages, with Ozi and GPS on a Thinkpad and we always knew where we were.
My GoogleEarth compilation of Northern Tunisia shows my GPS track running down one lane of the (only) Superhighway, and back the other...
So, there are some DIY reasons some times.
But I sure don't have 10,000 plus points of interest already logged in!
And the nearest McDonald's is probably in Rome...

Not too long ago, traveling from Upstate, NY, we got caught in that wicked snow storm in PA while we were heading to the Keys for a family trip. We were stuck near Wilkes-Barre on Rt 81 and EVERY major road was closed. The National Guard was out and stopped everyone and made people stay the night. I whipped out the laptop, ran MS Mappoint 2006 (with BU353 gps), looked at where we were and visually right clicked on individual 'add to route' back road points (because I knew all major roads were closed) to head East to I95 North of MD and then simply said 'Get Directions' which connected all the points I added to a new route. I swear, we were the only ones that were able to escape PA that night. I have no clue if the other GPS proggies can do what Mappoint can do so easily but I know it was worth every penny for us that night.
